What are the configuration settings when Hunk is connected with MongoDB having SSL certification (.pem file)?

Hi,
Can you please share the configuration settings when hunk is connected with the mongoDB having ssl .pem attachment file and authentication.

It looks like you will first need to setup MongoDB Client PEM based on these steps:
http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/tutorial/configure-ssl-clients/

Then from a Hunk configuration point of view add these two flags:

vix.mongodb.auth.mechanism = X509
vix.mongodb.auth.username = [username]

MongoDB allows to specify 4 types of authentication mechanism, namely Plain, Kerberos, CR(Challenge-Response) and X509; for verfying user and database access.
